    Right quite a few updates - some small, some a wee bit bigger ( and noisier Wink )

    Gone for CL spec rears ( courtesy of Gee...Smile ) obviously on the one fitted at this point to give a comparison, also fitted amber sides and front indicatorsand a new 4lamp grill ( new smoked crystals ) and polished 928's.....

    Probably the biggest of all recently though is the stereo install....wanted something that fitted well with the kit thats gone into it ( all 90's spec stuff ) which consists of Alpine 7944, Mcintosh MSS471 Components, Mcintosh MSS468 10" Sub and Steg AQ75 amp....
    The install was done by a friend called Carl ( aka Shakey on Edition ), an all round top geezer and quality work....Many a phone call was made and a trip down to Southampton was made just over a week ago.......the brief was a full on 90's level install that wouldnt have looked out of place back in the day - so - without ever having made one before a bass tube was built.....


    Had the tweeters mounted in the a pillars as well - pics to follow...
    Love it, the quality is top notch and sound is awesome.....
    Gave it a bit of a clay on sat too

    Hope ya like

    That looks awesome buddy. The rims REALLY suit it and the orange repeaters all round look much better than I thought they would.

    Seems to be causing a bit of a rucks on E38 at the min - but then again thats Edition for ya

    Not fully convinced, kinda like it cos ive not seen it before but not sure how long it will stay on.....and is it just me or does some of the crap on Edition get really tedious after a while?

    Funny really as a guy did this colour combo last year on E38 but he was a name on the scene and they ALL loved it,thats E38 for ya,I personally love it it looks ace,saw a thread on E38 about a guy selling a BMW and you asked if he was interested in a swap,if you do decide to sell or swap please please get in touch with me first as I am on the lookout for a nice mk2 ideally a VR'd one but yours is a beauty and i would defo consider buying it off you.
